The story gained a lot of steam yesterday as bloggers and news sources reported Cathy's "Guilty as Charged" response to the company's Biblical, anti-LGBT stance.
Where most companies would be in damage-control mode after such public revelations, Cathy has upped the ante.
Appearing on The Ken Coleman Show, Cathy stated the following:
"I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Cathy said. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about."
"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy said.
"We need to be more faithful to depend on a God who does love us and wants to have a relationship with us, and wants to give us the desires of our hearts … We intend to stay the course," Cathy said.
"We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles," Cathy explained.Watch:
Hey, hear that? That was the sound of Chick-fil-a losing my business! And the business of every family member I have! Good job Cathy!ReplyDelete
Is eating chickens biblical? Do they get around the rules because birds never used to be considered animals?ReplyDelete
I ask because chickens do not chew their cuds nor do they have cloven hooves.
Which are the two requirements for eating meat in the OT.
Also, does Mr. Cathy feel he needs to actually kill gay folks - Leviticus indicates he should! - or is he reinterpreting Gods word to merely mean that gays ought to be publicly insulted?
I hear they taste like chicken.Delete
